Our Silfra Snorkeling & Lava Caving Tour is a greatcombination tour for those who want to make the most of their time inIceland.On this trip you will get to snorkel through one of the world’s mostfantastic snorkel and dive sites, Silfra, as well as go hiking through a lavatube that was created thousands of years ago by a river of red glowinglava.Depending on the time of year and the weather, we will choose eithertheGjábakkahellir cave in Thingvellir or the Leiðarendi cave, which is closerto Reykjavik.Both caves are lava tubes that display the same typical featuresof this most common type of lava cave in Iceland.  The caves are full of utterly weird andwonderful rock formations as well as a splattering of amazing colors.Pleasemake sure to bring good shoes, as we will walk over very uneven ground.Eventhough at some points inside the cave we will have to climb and crawl a little,this cave tour is an easy one that can be undertaken by everyone who feelscomfortable in confined spaces and is fit to take a short hike.You can readmore about the Silfra snorkeling tour here.Note that snorkelers and divers canjoin on the caving portion of the tour together.
